Yo-Yo Ma Plays Strauss

New World Symphony

Yo-Yo Ma — celebrated cellist, cultural ambassador and humanitarian — joins Michael Tilson Thomas and the Fellows for this once-in-a-lifetime performance at the Adrienne Arsht Center. Adventures abound in Richard Strauss’ epic tone poem, as Ma and San Francisco Symphony Principal Violist Jonathan Vinocour depict the delusional pursuits of Don Quixote and sidekick Sancho Panza. From battles against windmills and bleating sheep to magical flights and rocking boat rides, Strauss’ score brings the dynamic duo’s wild exploits to life. Felix Mendelssohn’s Fourth Symphony channels his youthful tour of Italy in a series of sunny impressions, while the cheerful, feel-good Overture to Rosamunde is signature Franz Schubert from its theatrical start to its race-to-the-finish finale.
